The H.264/AVC video coding standard uses the rate distortion optimization (RDO) method to improve the compression performance in the intra prediction. Whereas the computational complexity is increased comparing with previous standards due to this method, even though this standard selects the best coding mode for the current macroblock. In this paper, a fast(More)
A two-stage algorithm is proposed for locating smooth and detailed disparity vector fields in a stereo image pair. The algorithm consists of hierarchical disparity estimation using a region-dividing technique and edge-preserving regularization. The hierarchical region-dividing disparity estimation increases the efficiency and reliability of the estimation(More)
Inter-frame coding using inter-and intra-predictions plays an important role in achieving high compression efficiency in H.264/AVC. However, most intra-predictions are unnecessary, since the intra-coding mode occupies less than 5% of the overall coding in inter-frame coding. In this paper, we propose an intra mode skip algorithm for inter-frame coding in(More)
In this paper, we present a resource-aware and quality-fair video content sharing system. When a video sharing server has insufficient uplink bandwidth and needs to serve multiple video content sharing services via streaming or downloading to other client peers using TCP transport, each service shares the limited uplink bandwidth equitably, due to the fair(More)
